  • WHY: Buffalo Trace is one of the best bang-for-your-buck spirits of any kind, let alone one of the best Bourbon values. With supreme richness, weight, and plenty of depth, there are few whiskies from anywhere that can match this workhorse, dollar for dollar. From the same distillery that makes Pappy Van Winkle, Blanton’s, Weller, and Elmer T. Lee, Buffalo Trace is the flagship label and it never disappoints.
  • HOW: No one’s quite sure exactly how Buffalo Trace makes such great whiskies, but credit is often given to the conditions in the warehouses. Every warehouse at Buffalo Trace is heated during the winter—a tradition started by E.H. Taylor in the 1800s—to keep the whiskey moving in and out of the barrels, gathering more of that sweet oak flavor, rather than lying dormant during the cold months. Buffalo Trace’s whiskies are known for their perfect balance of sweetness and spice. 
  • WHAT: Buffalo Trace doesn’t disclose its exact mashbills, but there are essentially three Bourbon recipes made at the distillery: 1 is the standard low-rye, 2 is high-rye recipe, and 3 is wheated recipe that swaps out the rye for wheat as the flavor grain. Buffalo Trace, Eagle Rare, E.H. Taylor and Stagg are all made from mashbill 2, while Elmer T. Lee, Blanton’s, and Rock Hill Farms are from 2. Weller and Pappy Van Winkle are made from the wheated recipe. Buffalo Trace is bottled at 45% ABV.
